Saturday will bring a focus on managing complications, including intraoperative and postoperative problems, rescuing emergencies, and complications related to anesthesia.
Dr. Assia will give a keynote lecture on the topic of “Innovative Solutions to Challenging Cases.”
More wet labs will be offered Saturday afternoon, and several groups will give presentations Saturday evening.
The meeting will wind down Sunday morning with a half-day session on “IOL Selection: Triumphs and Tragedies,” and refractive surprises.
“Topics such as how to change lens powers and figure out IOL challenges and how to calculate exchanges and select IOLs after refractive surgery will be covered,” Dr. Osher said.
The meeting will end with something Dr. Osher said has proven valuable—each faculty member providing his or her single best “pearl” to help cataract surgeons improve their outcomes in the OR the following week.
The fee to attend this year’s meeting is $750 if registration is completed between Oct. 31 and Dec. 31. Most meals are included.
An onsite registration fee is available after that, as space allows. Residents and fellows can receive a discounted rate of $300.
Special hotel room rates are available at the Ritz Carlton, Omni, and Marriott. For more information, go to the meeting website (www.cstellingitlikeitis.com).
